Egyptian amulets were types of jewellery or charms which offered protection to their owner - they were believed to give the owner strength, good health, riches or courage. Some people wore or carried these objects during their everyday life. Some amulets were buried with people when they died to give them protection in the afterlife! As you can see below, they came in lots of different shapes and sizes.
